Whether you are looking for a kid-friendly treat or an easy dessert for dinner, Cookies and Cream Truffles fits the bill.
Cookies and Cream Truffles are delicious. There I said it. I love these truffles, I admit it. Sometimes, just admitting is the first step, right? YUM! Seriously, these truffles are so simple to make and your belly will be asking for more!
These truffles use such basic ingredients that you can sub in what you need based on your dietary restrictions or needs. For my recipe, I used products that were gluten-free, dairy-free and nut-free. I used K-Toos cookies (I buy them by the case on amazon), Enjoy Life Foods Mini Chips (okay, I buy these by the case on amazon too), tofutti cream cheese and earth balance butter.
Because of the ease of this recipe, your kids can and will want to help! I mean who doesn’t love to get messy in the kitchen? Okay, I like to get messy but cleaning up that mess…nah…not so much.
Love sprinkles? Yeah, me too! If you are making these around a certain holiday…say Valentines Day…you can add pink or red sprinkles to the top for a little extra color!
